My family fled Czarist-controlled Lithuania in 1906. They strongly desired to assimilate into American society, but kept alive familiar Lithuanian traditions and customs, including making flavorful liqueurs. The tradition of crafting fine liqueurs has been passed from generation to generation, and we are pleased to share our unique liqueur with you. Sapling Vermont maple liqueur combines old-word heritage with the flavor of Vermont. I gained appreciation for maple syrup while living in Vermont and visiting the sugar houses of friends in spring. Understanding the amount of work required to produce quality maple syrup has given me profound respect for the final product. With a nod to family tradition and the tradition of Vermont, I offer you the unique taste of Sapling Vermont maple liqueur.

Open June 3 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. We invite people to tour the sugarhouse, the shop, watch the beef animals and the playful calves born this spring.  We will be serving our own naturally fed beef sliders on Bread Shed slidder rolls.  These will be offered free. Our normal hours are 10 am to 6 pm, Monday thru Friday, 10 to 2 on Saturday and normally closed Sundays.  We can always accommodate someone if they give us a call at 257-0163.  We sell maple syrup, maple cream, maple coated nuts, maple candy, Grafton, Sugarbush and Cabot cheeses, jams, jellies, candles, gift baskets.  We also sell our naturally fed beef (everything they eat is grown on the farm), all cuts, pre frozen.
